ABOUT

Flux Kit is an independent organization devoted to cultural projects able to connect Asia and Europe. Its work is mainly focused on Southeast Asia and especially on Myanmar.

Flux Kit is designed to create intercultural encounters and to record contemporary culture through a variety of curatorial projects, researches and artistic production.

Its mission is to promote debate between people with different cultural backgrounds and life experiences, setting up activities in Europe and Asia, and expanding worldwide networks among creative professionals and thinkers. Flux Kit develops projects that intend to establish a permanent research through the programming.

 

Our production/work is inter- and trans-disciplinary in character:

 

interdisciplinary

 

Exploring social phenomena and artistic practices, Flux Kit intends to connect arts to sociology of communications and philosophy. We consider contemporary art a space that doesn’t need, neither pretend, boundaries in order to exist and happen. For this reason, contemporary art offers us a unique dimension of freedom and experimentation. Developing educational programs, Flux Kit seeks to establish associations with other organizations who also recognize in arts and creativity the ideal space of synthesis where different disciplinary approaches can meet and offer meaningful points of view on the world.
